An American named Jones is on a boat trip. The first day of the trip, he sits opposite a Frenchman for lunch. The Frenchman arrives late. As he comes in, he turns to Mr. Jones and says, “Bon appétit”. Mr. Jones, who knows no French at all, thinks that the Frenchman is giving his name, so he stands up and says, “Jones.”

The second day the Frenchman arrives late and says, “Bon appétit.” Mr. Jones gets up and says, “Jones.” The third day the same thing happens.

The fourth day, as Mr. Jones is taking a morning walk around the boat, he meets an old friend. His friend asks him how the trip is going. Mr. Jones mentions that there is an Italian man named Bonappetit opposite him at lunch. His friends understands the situation immediately. He explains that the man isn’t Italian. He tells Mr. Jones that the man is French and that he is wishing him a pleasant lunch. Mr. Jones decides to correct the situation.

Mr. Jones arrives late for lunch that day. When he walks into the dining area, the Frenchman is already eating. Mr. Jones says, “Bon appétit.” The Frenchman smiles and says, “Jones.”
